Milner Frustrated At Newcastle
Reports in the Mirror today claim that Newcastle midfielder James Milner will slap in a transfer request as he is growing increasingly frustrated at being left out of the team.
Milner was set on a move to Aston Villa and had travelled down to Birmingham to talk terms only to be re-called by the clown Freddy Shepherd. Some say Shepherd wanted to get one over Martin O'Neill after he turned down the Magpies job.
Milner didn't even make the bench for Newcastle against Fulham on Saturday despite his re-call and claims that he was in Newcastle's plans. The paper claims Milner will now officially ask to leave. Whether Villa will return for Milner isn't clear though, especially as more money could be available for transfer targets in both January and the summer.
